More Messages to the Future
I commit to you to change one thing a year in our lifestyle to live more environmentally friendly.
We will look back on our time here and ask, “What did I do?”
If we truly live our present moment, maybe you’ll have a future.
My climate promise is to stop using electricity too much.
Dear Erica and Matthew,
I want you to be able to bring your kids to Tahoe and experience the same clarity that you had as a child.
Dear Me of Tomorrow,
I plan to plant more things this spring, as we do every year in our garden.
Dear Future Explorers,
I am often faced with the question: why do I care so much about this pale blue dot that we inhabit?
Dear Kai and Leah,
I want you to feel awestruck like I do. It is important to feel small sometimes, to feel the weight of reality, to recognize the scale of a challenge, to see where you fit and what you are up against. This is the case with climate change.
I will recycle stuff I found.
The world is changing and it is happening fast.
I pledge to take the bus.
I promise to reach out to more people to ditch driving and consider using public transportation. I promise to convince Marin markets that sensible policies in density and mixed use planning will further enhance everyone’s quality of life.
Dear Gorasia descendants,
I will do all that I can, and hope my fellow inhabitants join my pursuit, to nurture this planet.
